As a child I can remember going to church every Sunday and doing my Sunday school, as my sister and I got older we started to actually help out and run Sunday school. And I remember talking about Noahs Arc and how he saved two of every animal and it rained for those 40 days and nights.
Though each episode focuses on a moral lesson, the lesson is only one that pertains to outward behavior. The characters personalities are super-carnal and throughout each episode behave like they have un-regenerated hearts, then at the end they learn that they have to “behave” better outwardly, but not have an inward change. In the old VeggieTales cartoons the characters went through what was akin to repentance.
Through a version of the Noah’s Ark story that relies a bit on poetic license, we see that following God doesn’t always make sense and that His plans for us are not always the same as our plans for us, but if we trust God and does what He tells us, His plans always turn out better. I think this message is especially relevant for today’s kids (and adults) because God’s ways are sounding stranger and stranger to those who don’t follow Him and we need to hear that it is okay for people to think that. We should follow God’s directions anyway.
Fun songs, fun music, and a great reminder to follow God’s plans for your life. It seems like a lot of reviews are taking issues with the new look of Veggie Tales. My younger nephew and niece loved the movie they want to watch it all the time.
Noah and his family along with a zoo full of animals take an adventure aboard an orange slice ark. After 40 days and nights of rain, everyones faith has been tested, and they are ready to jump ship. Will they chart a new course, or will they remember to trust God s promises? Grab your umbrellas and find out in this VeggieTales re-telling of the beloved Bible story!
